According to the medical experts, the volume that will be available to protect against coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2 will not meet the global demand, despite the efforts to produce billion of doses.

Based on a scientific research, it has been stated that around 70% of the global population will have to be immunized in order to gain control of the disease.
Market experts fear that the manufacturers will sell the vaccines only to the highest bidders. There are possibilities that the rich countries will stock up the vaccines and preferences will be given only to their citizens. This will be worldwide fight to survive against the infection.

Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, commented that the countries cannot think only of themselves because even if countries stock up the vaccines or immunize their citizens against the infection the spread of the disease cannot be stopped completely unless you shut off all your borders and trade.
He further commented that this problem is global and hence requires a global solution. The international health advocates want to avoid the scenario of 2009, where rich countries were leading the line for the H1N1 swine-flu vaccine only to leave the underdeveloped countries with negligible supply.

As many of the nations are struggling to find proper solution to end this pandemic, many of the world leaders are having nationalistic impulses to save their anxious populations in order to get back their economy in track.

In the US, the federal government that hold responsibility of the emergency vaccine development has already indicated that they will prioritize their domestic concerns first, which is the Trump administration's pandemic response.
The recent report published by the Market Research Store on the global disease control and prevention vaccine market showcases all the important points about the market. It also states the importance of considering every country into consideration during the outbreak of pandemics.
